Datta - Did you come up to my shop in Beaverton and look at my Porsche??  If so, glad to hear  that you are moving forward with your project.  Here are some of the people that I have dealt with in my quest for EV:

Portland Engine Rebuilding http://www.portlandenginerebuiders.com  balanced and lightened my flywheel for my Porsche although I thought they were going to make me take a drug test when I told them I wanted all the teeth removed.   They did a great job and were very nice to work with... I have had them do some ICE work for me in the past as well.  Ted King is who I worked with.

I have heard that Dutchman Motorsports http://www.dutchmanaxles.com/contacting-dutchman can do adaptors but I have not personally worked with them.

I ordered my adaptor from Fred at EV Source:

EV Source
877-215-6781(Toll Free - not a fax)

I believe that the actual machine work was done by a supplier in Canada for EV Source - I don't think that they do it in house but they did do a good job.  They make each one to order since each order is so unique and it will take a while to get.  This may be the first thing you want to order.  Be sure to look at the drive shaft on your motor and figure out what kind of coupler it will take to mate up to the flywheel.

Good luck!!

Subject: [Oeva-list] Looking for help on my conversion.

        I am in the middle of converting my 2010 Jeep Patriot to an EV. I have an Azure motor controller and an AC90 matched traction motor. I live in Hillsboro, Oregon and I am looking for some local business who can machine my traction motor (and Jeep fly wheel) onto Patriot's manual transmission with an adapter plate. I did read through some bad experiences of members who dealt with out of state vendors / mechinists and hence I am looking for some one local in Portland area. Also, it would be easier for me to tranport these heavy parts locally.
        Gary Graunke had kindly given me some contacts, but I could not contact a couple of them as they did not return my calls and thence this posting.

Thanks in advance,
Sham Datta.
